New Eldar Autarch Kit Has a Ton of Aspect Bits Options!

GW revealed a lot of new bits options for the new Eldar Autarch Kit for what Aspects it can be modeled as! Check out all the options!

With how many pieces Games Workshop has said it had originally, we thought they might release like this, where the one kit covers most of everything. It’s a cool idea, especially if it’s easy to magnetize because then you don’t have to buy as many separate kits to get all the options.

Path of the PreviewIn the second Path of the Preview (you can see the first one here), Warhammer Community unveiled all the ways you can build it and even the fact that is compatible with the current kit, so even more options. Let’s check it out!

The New Eldar Autarch Kit Has a Lot of Aspect Options!

Autarchs are skilled military commanders who combine strategic brilliance with deadly combat skills. But, unlike the Guardians that we saw last week, they have walked the Path of the Warrior several times, gaining experience from a number of different Aspects. They now walk the Path of Command, and they enter battle carrying their personal panoply of weaponry, acquired from their time in those Aspects.

This kit has plenty of options, allowing you to build the Autarch of your dreams, with three head options, two torso variants, and certain other still-secret options! In terms of weapons, you get a star glaive or a scorpion chainsword in one hand, and your pick of four ranged weapons in the other. Not only that, the weapons and upgrades are cross-compatible with the existing Autarch model.

These were the options we saw when they first announced the model in the Eldritch Omens box (they also confirmed you will get all the options in that box for this model).

Autarch Kit 3

The new miniature comes with options to equip your Autarch with a Howling Banshee mask, a regular helmet, or a bare head, as well as a choice of male and female torsos. 

You can also take a Warp Spider jump generator along with either a star glaive or a Scorpion chainsword. For those who prefer to slay their enemies from a distance, you also have options to take a shuriken pistol, Reaper launcher, Dragon fusion gun, or death spinner

This is a really cool idea it all just comes down to how easy you can magnetize or interchange the parts. Still, it is nice to have more options than fewer! With how many options this and the Guardians kit have, it bodes well for all the releases to have a lot of options and bits.

Autarch Kit 2

Phew! That’s a lot of options. Plus, this new model is fully compatible with the existing Autarch kit, giving you even more modelling choices.

If you have a few unbuilt Autarch kits lying around, then at this point it would probably be worth it to wait on building them. Or if you have already built yours, hopefully, you saved the bits somewhere!

Eldar Rangers Plastic Miniatures: Eldritch Omens

Equipped with long rifles and cameleoline cloaks which let them obscure themselves from enemy units, Rangers are the Craftworlds’ forward scouts.

Another Eldar staple has gotten new miniatures, this time the Rangers! Also included in the kit is a little icon of Kurnous, the god of the hunt. We would expect to see these models to be on the same 28mm bases that were included with the Howling Banshees when they were released in the fall of 2019.

Eldar Plastic Shroud Runners Miniatures: Eldritch Omens

Some of them prefer to zoom around the battlefield on Shroud Runners, which are Raptor jetbikes with a two-man crew – a Ranger pilot with a partner riding pillion.

Wow, what a cool concept!

We had seen these rumored recently in day 4 of the Eldar Leaks on Discord, but wow the miniatures do not disappoint either! Let’s start with the rumors:

Eldar Ranger Jetbikes Shroud Runners Rumors:

If this is true, these new Eldar Ranger Shourd Runner Jetbikes seem very strong. A mix of unique rules, buffed weapons, and of course signature mobility, mean this new tool might be able to help push the faction back into competitive relevance.

Reliable ballistic skill, unique cover rules, and a relatively low cost all seem too good to be true! We just have to wait and see as we know the models themselves are coming for sure now!

New 40k Plastic Eldar & Storm Guardians Kit Revealed

A mainstay kit for the Eldar is finally being reworked and you’ll actually be able to build either Eldar Guardian Defenders or Storm Guardians. They even previewed a new type of platform for your Storm Guardians that will keep them protected from enemy fire. 

Warhammer Community unveiled the new models with some insight into all the options. The article is also called the Path of the Preview, so with a name like that, we expect many more reveals before we see the Eldar codex.

The last time we saw a new Guardian, it was dead on the base of Lelith, so this is a serious step in the right direction!

New Eldar Guardians

The old Guardian squad has given us many years of faithful service, but this new kit improves upon these veteran miniatures, providing more dynamic poses and more choices of weapons, heads, and bodies.

Finally, new models with plenty of options!

New Eldar Guardians 2

New Eldar Guardians 3

New Eldar Guardians 4

 

New Eldar Guardians 5The new models look really sweet and they kept the older style but gave them a new feel. The poses are much more dynamic, they have way more options, and actually, look like something from this decade. Let’s just hope the legs aren’t two parts, as that is so frustrating to build. Still, even if they are two parts, we don’t care because Eldar needs these models so badly!

They can also be made as Storm Guardians, so there will probably be tons and tons of bits in this kit.

Storm Guardians

New Eldar Guardians 6

The new kit includes options to make either a squad of Guardian Defenders (including a heavy weapon platform) or a squad of Storm Guardians, with a new addition for the latter – a Serpent’s Scale Platform. The latter deflects incoming fire, allowing your squad to stroll nonchalantly across the battlefield before slicing their way through the younger races of the galaxy.

These are super dynamic and obviously have a lot of options with power swords, chainswords, grenades, and weapons. Plus they are grabbing a new platform that will keep them protected from incoming fire. They didn’t give any rules yet, but maybe something like a minus to hit or an invulnerable save, heck maybe both?

New 40k Eldar Dark Reapers Kit Revealed!

Dark Reapers

 

Dark Reapers 2

Continuing our stroll along the Path of the Preview ahead of a massive wave of upcoming Aeldari releases, we see some updated Aspect Warriors in beautiful, crisp, clean, plastic glory. Witness the grimmest, creepiest heavy hitters of them all.  

It’s awesome to see just how many kits they are revamping for Eldar, considering most are decades old, it only makes sense!

Dark Reapers 3

 

Dark Reapers 4

 

Dark Reapers 5

The kit comes with four warriors and an Exarch, as well as a Dark Reaper shrine – a representation of the god Khaine as he is perceived by these grim Aspect Warriors. 

The new figures look pretty sweet and they really kept the feel of the old ones but updated them to the current game. Considering so many people have used these over the years, we’ll have to see what kind of rules they get.

Dark Reaper Kit Bits Options

Dark Reapers 6

The Exarch has a choice of heads and a massive four weapon options, including the classic Reaper launcher, a three-tipped tempest missile launcher, an Aeldari missile launcher and a shuriken cannon.

Dark Reapers 7

For the first time, you’ll also find unhelmeted options for each warrior for use in Ynnari armies. They still retain their iconic range-finder fins, so they’re just as good at taking down their marks. 

We’re always for more bits and options! We’ll have to see if you can magnetize the parts easily as well so you can get the most out of each kit! Lastly, they mention next Monday will have more previews, so keep your eyes peeled for even more Eldar!

New Plastic 40k Eldar Warlocks

Eldar Warlock

 

Eldar Warlock 2

Warlocks are Aeldari seers who have previously walked the Path of the Warrior and so find it easier to develop psychic powers suited to battle. These versatile psykers can join your army as individual Characters or form a full conclave to assist your Farseers, bolster your warhost, and wreak havoc on the foe.

The new plastic models look pretty sweet, but like with all the kits, they have really kept the Eldar feel but updated the minis to the new times.

Eldar Warlock 3

These Warlocks come as a pair and can each be assembled with or without helmets, just like the new Guardian kit – great news if you don’t want your warriors to end up with helmet hair.

It’s always nice to get more minis in a set, let’s just hope the price doesn’t get too high for the pair. If they stay at the normal price for a single character, then we’d be all about it.

Multi-Part Kit

Eldar Warlock 4

You can build each Warlock with the choice of a shuriken pistol or an open hand, ready to unleash a mystic curse – or perhaps ask the craftworld’s barkeep to produce two drinks. The kit also contains one witchblade and one singing spear, allowing you to assemble a veritable Seer Council of distinct models.

It looks like with most of the new Eldar kits, they will be making the new plastic Warlock a multi-part kit with hand, head, and weapon options.

Here’s all the latest on the upcoming rules updates and points changes for Warhammer 40k.
